Possible that the shutter or the focus mechanism is faulty and will need to be opened. Only if you are competent must you attempt to remove the camera as the mechansim and circuit will be delicate which needs experience. Ohter wise the best option is to ask a reliable technician to assist in opening and checking for a locked mechanism. Possible that some link had come loose or some foreign dirt has clogged. Hope you try. Good day

My Canon Sd1000 will not take pictures. You can


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera does not have shutter priority mode (Tv) as listed in the link. Instead, put the camera in manual mode and turn off the flash, and also turn off the LCD display (press the DISP button). With these settings, try the fix in a darkened room, opening the battery door immediately after taking the picture. Give it several tries, if no luck consider also trying step 5a described in the link.

Lens Error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Camera DSC-W% is not getting on and lens not retracting


Try turning it on while manually pulling the lens assembly ever so lightly. Also try the same thing pushing it in, if that doesn't work.
Hope that works. Ed
